-took a train ride all the way to Versailles only to find out it's CLOSED on Mondays *GIANT FACEPALM*
-walked around the King's garden [humorous video] (holy Jesus it's HUGE)
-check out the freaky frog fountain
-panoramic view of the Château de Versailles
-got tired of dragging Joy's sick butt around Versailles so she went back to the hotel and I decided to check out the Musee d'Orsay. FYI - it's also closed on Mondays WTF
-trekked back to the Louvre again to see La Pyramide Inversée (really need to suppress the Da Vinci Code nerd in me) [video]
-went back to the hotel to wait for Eric to pick us up for dinner
[video of Champs-Elysees at night & crazy Parisian driving]
(you can also catch a bit of Eric's weird French accent)
-went to fancy restaurant (Le Congress)
-met Eric's parents...which was interesting. His parients only speak Mandarin (with a French accent), Cantonese, and French. No English. Between my Americanized Mandarin and Joy's limited knowledge of French & Canto, we managed to piece together a few conversations. I have never worked so hard at making small talk -_-
-They ordered us the "seafood appetizer" which consisted of the following (all raw and still very much alive):
mini conch shell creatures
and more snails.
+ some raw beef tar tar stuff
I was poppin' pepto bismols faster than you can say GERRY BUTLER MAKE A BABY IN ME
-Dinner ended up costing over nearly 600 euros (over $750 jesus christ). I
-went back to Eric's house for drinks and it was ridiculously foggy since his house is at higher elevation.
-watched old school King Kong (which went waaaay over my head since it was dubbed in French) and talked till 4am @_@
-finally got back to the hotel and wondered how the heck we were gonna get up by 8am the next day to hit the catacombs and meet up with ewanmesong...
